Fighting the Spirit of Gluttony – Linda Hasche

 

Ephesians 6:11-13 ~ “Put on the full armor of God, so that you can make your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this world’s darkness, and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore take up the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you will be able to stand your ground, and having done everything, to stand.”
=========================

I feel somebody needs to read this so he/she can be set free from a spirit of gluttony, that seems to plague many Christians here in the USA; this has been something I had to start fighting again as well.

This morning (1-4-19) I was pondering why it seemed I’m struggling with eating and weight again after all of these years. I had been set free from compulsive overeating back in the late 1990s, when I cried out to the LORD to help me. I had been on so many diets, then binge eating in between, I told folks I lost and gained weight so many times I could have a family reunion with myself (LOL, yep, you can chuckle here).

The LORD answered my prayers in an unexpected way back then. I didn’t know what “being full” was; it was when the plate was clean. My “full-o-meter” was broken. I remember clearly the first meal I was helped by Holy Spirit, when after eating some of my meal, in mid-bite, he spoke in my spirit: “STOP!!!”. Woo-wee, that startled me and yes I stopped and put the fork down and didn’t eat anything else that meal. From that point on, Holy Spirit was helping me learn when I was full by telling me “STOP” at any point in the meal. I lost about 25 pounds, just listening to and obeying the Holy Spirit. That training also helped me learn how to clearly hear the voice of the LORD.

Over the course of three years, I had to re-learn my attitude towards food, learn what portion sizes were and most importantly learn when I was full. I had gone from a whopping size 26 down to a size 8/10. . . . UNTIL, the last couple of years. Hmm, what’s going on here? Why now? I gained about 15 pounds up here in NW Iowa farm county, where food is a very big deal and portion sizes are equally big.

So, I spent some quiet time this morning really focusing on this, because I didn’t want to go back to the insanity of yo-yo dieting. This is what Holy Spirit revealed to me: A Spirit of Gluttony was the undercurrent of my weight gain, fueling the compulsion to eat. I went right along with it too. It was an “ah-ha” moment.  I pondered this for some time and realized that indeed I had that subtle push to mindlessly eat like I had in the past.

I asked the LORD to forgive me for not taking care of His temple (my body) and to help me in ALL areas; to help me take care of His temple. I wanted to move forward with His leading so I asked Him what I should eat for breakfast. Yes, folks, the LORD cares about the smallest details that will help us to hear and obey His voice, especially to help us get set free from ANYTHING that binds us.

Holy Spirit said, “One egg and a piece of toast.”

I don’t like toast and would prefer having just two eggs, but I chose to follow through and obey his direction. I also view this as another opportunity to develop an even stronger/closer relationship with the Spirit of the Living God (Holy Spirit) so I can respond to the slightest prompting, nudging, direction. To be fine tuned like an instrument in the hands of a classical Master Musician.

FOLKS . . . It’s time. We gotta get THAT level of intimacy with the LORD, listening to and obeying the Holy Spirit in ALL areas so we can fulfil that which we have been created to do.

JESUS CAME TO SET THE CAPTIVES FREE and that includes freedom from gluttony or any other addiction that binds us up. WE ARE TO BE OVERCOMERS and that is in all areas, folks. Yep, even food.

NOW HERE’S THE SIMPLE TRUTH: We can NOT do any of this on our own. It takes the POWER of the Holy Spirit, by the blood of Jesus Christ (Yeshua) to set us free and help us overcome. BUT we have to want to be set free and be willing to listen and OBEY the leading of the Holy Spirit.

IS MY WEIGHT AN ISSUE IN ETERNITY? NOPE!!! BUT if I put food on a pedestal as my “go too” when I’m stressed or bored, guess what? I just made food an idol.

WHAT CAN YOU TAKE FROM ALL OF THIS?
If there is ANYTHING in your life that you have a feeling of compulsion to do, that causes you or another person (or even animal) harm and/or is NOT bringing you peace, then there likely is a demonic spirit amplifying your fleshly desires. Ask the LORD to show you if there is. He will show you and He will set you free if you are willing to listen and obey Him. REPENT from these things and follow the leading of Holy Spirit to help you stay on the straight and narrow path.

I need to be really clear here . . . I’m not saying there is a demonic spirit behind every sin, because we sometimes do a fallen fine job sinning on our own. BUT, if there is the compulsion behind sin, where you are having difficulties ceasing that sin . . . Again, there may be a demonic spirit behind that. Seek the LORD for the FULL truth and be ready to receive that full truth.

So, here I go forward on the tiny, tiny, narrow road that gets more difficult in the darkening world we are living in. Please join me if you also have an area that you must be set free from. We have to walk this out. It’s a part of our training, so stop complaining. Start marching soldiers, we have some battles to fight and we gotta be ready. Waddling into war is NOT an option . . . So let’s get to it. MOVE OUT!!! ONWARD CHRISTIAN SOLDIERS!!!

Philippians 4:13 ~ “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.”
